nested in a quaint historical waterfront part of the town while shopping we found this restaurant that was that was just perfect for dinner. I always love to eat the seafood dishes when I visit the coast since it is local and fresh tasting

Icehouse is one of our favorite places to eat or just have some wine. We are regulars. When we walk in Juan brings our favorite wine as soon as we sit down. Always good food. Menu has lots of variety.

My husband and I love Icehouse. Being able to pull the boat up to their dock is very convenient in the summer. The crab stuffed flounder is to die for!! They also have a large selection of craft beer and a nice specialty drink menu.

We have eaten here several times before. The menu offers a good selection for brunch and lunch as well when we've been. It's nice to get a table with a view over the sound. Prices were reasonable and the staff was friendly . When we went they were pretty busy but they took care of us in a timely manner.... More

We had a variety of meals selected at our table. Though our guests courteously acknowledged their meals were fine, we were embarrassed that we had recommended this restaurant. I had the pecan crusted salmon. It was virtually tasteless, and luke warm when served. I guess that sand-like bed on which the salmon rested was of pecans, but who would ever... More

Fun location by the water, live music in a courtyard out front. Unfortunately, the food did not measure up. My wife and I both had mashed potatoes with our dinner. They were cold and had an odd taste. The fish we had was good but nothing special. Nice location for a drink and appetizers.

The food was really good. Our waitress wasn't the best/nicest, but she wasn't the worst one either. It has an awesome waterfront view, and I even saw dolphins while I was eating dinner here. They are also patio pet-friendly!

Good food and atmosphere! Our family of 7 has a wide variety of tastes. From hamburger, linguini, calamari and fish and chips, the only complaint was it was a lot of food...lol. The live music was fun and gave a feel for the local culture.

I've been here a couple times. Once with friends on a late night during the weekend during the summer where the restaurant was more of a crowded bar scene. However, the dinner seating was separate from the bar so it was more relaxed when dining. The second time we went was on a weekday evening with family. We were seated... More
